Good morning Southpoint Family,
I wanted to take a moment to share an important update in regards to the Coronavirus. Last night our board met as a whole to develop an ongoing plan for our church. Under the recommendation of the Florida Conference as well as our local and state government, Southpoint will suspend in person services for the next two weeks. While we know this will be a disruption, we feel it is the best way to help protect those in our community that are most vulnerable.
However, we will be continuing to stream an abbreviated worship service each and every Sabbath at 11:30 am until we are able to return. We are also working to develop plans for both adult and children's Sabbath school, which we hope to implement on week two.
After this initial two weeks, we will reevaluate the situation and make decisions as to the reopening of the church. At this time, I am reminded of Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
We are asking four things of our members:
Finally, we want to help those in need. Please let us know if there is something we as the leaders can do to help. We have people who can help with errands for our elderly population. We have people who will pray with you if you are in need. Please stay connected with us during this trying time. My family and myself will be back April 1st but are closely monitoring the situation with the elders. Please check back for periodic updates as things are changing rapidly.
May God bless and keep you,
